Support » Plugin: Google XML Sitemaps » Bug: NoIndex Pages are being included in the XML Sitemap

  • Hi,
    The Sitemap is including pages that are set to noindex.

    I have multiple test, dev pages and woocommerce products that I’ve set to noindex. This is giving mixed signals to the search engines as on one hand the sitemap is saying we want the page indexed, and on the other hand the noindex meta tag is saying don’t index the page.
    The current exclude posts option is impractical for excluding many posts.

    Surely this is a major bug and needs to be addressed.
